    Yacht-Master 16622

    Hi all,

    Just wondering if anyone has purchased a rep of the 16622, particularly prior to when Rolex introduced the rehaut engraving. I personally liked the gap where the reflective dial was replaced with the flat dial prior to the rehaut engraving.

    Some TDs have some versions available, but thought I'd check if anyone out there has ventured down this road before.

    Thanks

    The 16622 is pretty outdated at this point. One of the things about the 16622 was that the SELs stuck out past the ends of the lugs. Rolex changed that with the 116622 and made the SELs flush with the lug ends.
    Trusty has an old 16622- don't know if he still has them in stock

    Maybe you could find one with a better movement if you look around

      Thanks for that alligoat. That's possibly the one TD that I haven't checked so far but will contact them about it. Yes, I've noticed the SEL issue, but the newer sand blasted bezel on the 116622 doesn't look as good as the older style on the 16622.

      Thanks again.

          Unfortunately not, looks like all the TDs including Trusty can't source the older YM anymore.

          If anyone out there has a 16622 for sale, please let me know.

            Check out a rep of the 226659 YM- it's the 42mm white gold YM with the rubber bracelet. Very understated.

              That's a fantastic watch. I've got a low end rep of it but the GMF version of that is my next purchase. That and the rhodium 40mm are the best of the current models.
